Donald Trump Jr.’s Attorney Calls NBC News To Clarify | Morning Joe | MSNBC


HEARING FROM THEM RIGHT NOW TRYING TO GET MORE DETAILS WE WILL KEEP YOU POSTED

BACK TO YOU >> I WANTED TO JUMP IN HERE, EVEN AS YOU ARE READING THAT STATEMENT WE HAVE AN UPDATE FROM ALLEN FUFERFAS YOU READ THE STATEMENT HE NOW CALLED US BACK AT NBC NEWS WITH A CLAIRE IDENTIFICATION

HE NOW SAYS THERE WAS A THIRD PERSON IN THAT ROOM, IN ADDITIO MANAFOR THE AND THE ATTORNEY AND FUTERFAS SAYS HE SPOKE WITH THAT OTHER INDIVIDUAL, THE SIXTH PERSON AND NOT THE SOVIET FORMER SOVIET COUNTERINTELLIGENCE OFFICER WE HAVE BEEN TALKING ABOUT SO HIS DESCRIPTION, WE CAN'T LIVING IT RIGHT NOW BUT HIS DESCRIPTION OF THE PERSON WE JUST WE HEARD ABOUT IN THAT STATEMENT FROM DONALD TRUMP JR'S ATTORNEY MAY HAVE BEEN NOT FROM THE FORMER COUNTERINTELLIGENCE OFFICER BUT OF THIS ALLEGED SIXTH PERSON IN THE ROOM >> Reporter: AND TO BE CLEAR, WILLIE, WE DON'T KNOW WHETHER OR NOT THERE WAS AN INTERPRETER IN THE ROOM AT THE TIME

SO THE POTENTIAL EXISTS THAT HE PAY HAVE SPOKEN TO SAID INTERPRETER AND NOT TO THIS INDIVIDUAL THAT WE HAVE NOW REPORTING ABOUT ON NBC NEWS, JUST TO EMPHASIZE THIS, PRRM, DONALD TRUMP JR IN HE EFFORT TO PUT THIS TO REST SPOKE TO SEAN HANNITY AFTER THIS BROKE, IN SIMPLE TERMS, HE EVIDENCE, THAT IS EVERYTHING TRYING TO GET RID OF THIS I ASKED THE WHITE HOUSE OFFICIAL ABOUT THIS WOULDN'T IT HAVE BEEN SIMPLE TO HAVE TOLD EVERYTHING DURING THE COURSE OF THAT INTERVIEW OR PERHAPS IN THAT INITIAL STATEMENT THAT CAME OUT ON SATURDAY, AS NBC NEWS REPORTED

WHITE HOUSE ADVISERS HELPED CRAFT ON THE WAY BACK FROM THE G20 TRIP THIS OFFICIAL SHOULD HAVE PUT IT OUT IMMEDIATELY, BASICALLY SAID, YOU KNOW, THIS PERSON IS NOT INTIMATELY AWARE OF THE DETAILS HE SAID, IT'S VERY LIKELY HE DOESN'T REMEMBER THE DETAILS FROM WAY BACK THEN I SAID WOULDN'T YOU GO THROUGH ALL THE RECORDS THE SAME WAY AIM TOLD JARED KUSHNER'S LEGAL TEAM WENT THROUGH E-MAILS AND THAT'S HOW THEY BECAME AWARE OF THIS e-MAIL CHAIN, WHICH LED THEM TO PUT THIS KREMLIN-LINKED LAWYERS NAME ON THE SECURITY CLEARANCE FORMS THAT JARED KUSHNER WAS FILING? WOULDN'T DON JR'S TEAM HAVE DONE THE SAME? >> BASICALLY THE PUSH BACK I GOT, THIS WAS HAPPENING SO QUICKLY MORE RECENTLY HE MAY NOT HAVE HAD THE ABILITY TO DO THAT

WHICH IS AN INSUFFICIENT ANSWER ESPECIALLY WHEN YOU CONSIDER THE FACT THAT THIS STARTED ON SATURDAY, AND IT WAS SEVERAL DAYS BEFORE THAT INTERVIEW TOOK PLACE ON FOX NEWS, SO EVEN IF THAT WERE A CREDIBLE ARGUE, THEY WOULD HAVE HAD APPROACHING 100 HOURS TO HAVE TRIED TO HAVE DONE THAT WORK AN GET BETTER INFORMATION THAT PUTS US TO REST >> IN THAT INTERVIEW, SEAN HANNITY GAVE DONALD TRUMP JR MANY OPPORTUNITIES, IS THIS EVERYTHING? DONALD TRUMP JR SAID, QUOTE, THIS IS ANYTHING, SEAN HANNITY SAID IS THERE A CHANCE YOU MET WITH ANYBODY ELSE? HE SAYS, I BELIEVE IT WAS POSSIBLE, NOBODY DIRECTLY RELATED TO THIS STORY >> I WAS GOING TO SAY, EARLIER IN THIS WEEK I WAS IN A BRIEFING WITH SARAH HUCKABY SANDERS I SAID THIS DRIP, DRIP, TRIP, UNDERMINING THIS CREDIBILITY OF THIS ADMINISTRATION

>> SANDERS SAYS IT'S UNDERMINING THE CREDIBILITY OF THE MEDIA AT WHICH POINT I TOLD HER THAT WAS A QUOTE TAKEN FROM
